3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Pros: The hotel has a cool vibe and interesting, spacious rooms. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I was able to store my luggage after checking out because my flight was much later in the day. Also, the location is great and the neighborhood was cool. The shower pressure was good, and nice and warm (although, the toilet didn't flush that well). I liked the bathroom in general. Also pros were the little fridge and microwave. Cons: There was a musty smell in the room, probably because the place is so old and converted from a factory. In addition, the pillows were way too big and there was no variety, so I ended up getting a headache from not sleeping well on the pillow (or taking it away altogether because it was uncomfortable). The bed itself is fine, it was just the pillow situation. Finally, the place is FREEZING - the central air is pumped so high, the hallways feel like a refrigerator and my room was so cold when I got in that I had to put the heat on for a little while to bring it back to a normal temperature. Once the temperature adjusted, I turned it all off and just let it be. Cold air, warm air, and no air at all - it all smelled musty. All in all, it was adequate for what I needed, but I probably won't stay there again. Those issues were more inconveniences that kind of added up to a "meh" feeling - it wasn't the worst place by far, it just wasn't the best. The nice staff and good location helped offset those small discomforts.

1/5 Terrible

Business traveller, Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
I booked this hotel for a business trip where it was 3 of us staying in a room. We paid a lot of money for nothing 1. They do not clean your room daily only when you check out. Which means they do not supply you with towels every day. 2. Majority of the staff had attitudes or was never at the front desk. 3. The shower didn’t drain appropriately and would fill at the bottom. We wanted to say something but the staff already had attitudes it wasn’t something we wanted to deal with. 4. The fitness center is soo small and has 3 machines in there 5. No pool. 6. It really just a regular hotel that claims to be luxury and is worth half of what I paid. I wish I would get some of my money back….
